Hey folks,

As you might now tonight's event is a sold out, so I was wondering if 
someone can't show up tonight and would be awesome enough to give away 
their ticket.

If there's a better way for me to cancel please let me know.

We keep getting those messages all the time.

Any idea why we don't use bigger number for the available tickets? (since
the limit doesn't mean anything anyway, right?)

Maybe a nice-to-have feature for the ticketing site too is showing a custom
message if all tickets are taken, where SydJS can explain that the ticket
is not really required!

The thing is, the tickets actually ARE required, but we don't check them 
at the door. If there are a lot of people exploiting this we'll have to 
start checking. It hasn't been a problem yet, but at least the 
_impression_ that tickets are required helps keep us around the right 
numbers.

The issue is with pizza, beer, and standing space. That room only fits so 
many people, and we do need to make sure we have enough supplies for 
everyone to be satisfied.

If you want to come to SydJS, please do try to get a ticket, but yeah - no
one is checking and it's not yet a problem.

The reverse is also true, and I think more important - if you get a ticket
and don't come, consider it like taking an awesome experience away from 
someone else. Please don't do that.

See you guys tonight!

The reverse is also true, and I think more important - if you get a ticket
and don't come, consider it like taking an awesome experience away from 
someone else. Please don't do that.

Short version:

                If you can't make it, just delete the event from your 
calendar and we'll release your ticket automatically.

Longer version:

The ticket confirmation you receive comes as a calendar invite.

If you accept that, the event will go into your calendar.

If you delete the calendar event later, when you realise you can't make 
it, Tixi gets an email saying you've declined.

When Tixi gets that email, we release your ticket(s) back to the pool.

Well, how about increasing the available number of tickets?
I think it makes sense if it's important to record how many are coming, and
we know the number of attendees exceeds the number of tickets every time,
then maybe we allow a larger number of tickets to be used?

This will give more meaning to the tickets themselves. For me for example,
I don't bother getting a ticket because I know from the mailing list that
very likely I won't be able to get one anyway. If I know that I'm likely to
be able to, I'll be keen to use it to tell you guys there's one more coming
that's me.

Agreed, just get a ticket guys. 
Once we go ticketless you'll all be complaining that there isn't enough 
beer/pizza for everyone. 
The tickets are there to help the organisers estimate how many people may 
attend, cater accordingly, and also to ensure that not too many people 
turn up. I'm sure there's a lot of people that don't get tickets, and I'm 
also sure that if/when that became a problem the guys would need to start 
enforcing the ticketing policy properly. In the meantime they kindly turn 
a blind eye. Yes they could extend the number of tickets, however at that 
point they may need to begin enforcing the ticketing policy more strictly.

>> I would get a ticket if there were any

Exactly, whenever I try, I find it sold out already. I remember there were
jokes and races about getting tickets before they're sold out and how fast
they are to be.

And this is what I'm talking about, if we allow more people to come than
those who get tickets, then why not allow more people to get tickets?

Why not just increase the number of tickets available to book so that
people actually do what they're asked to do and book them?!
(because, again, how will I book a ticket if they're all sold out?!)

It’s a form of attendance control.

You have 50 tickets available, sure you expect some people to rock up 
without tickets, say 10, meaning you can expect 60. That begs the question
why not just release 60 tickets? Well then you have to cater for 70 
people, maybe that’s beyond the capacity of the venue. Then your other 
option is to enforce ticket checking. That’s tedious, boring and someone 
has to be that guy who is acting as a bouncer and turning people away, 
hearing stories of “oh but my friends are in there”, and so on.

Things sell out, that’s the nature of events, and the more popular the 
event the faster they sell out. Life sucks some times. But the world goes 
on, you have the choice to turn up and hope that this month is another 
month that tickets aren’t being checked or not turn up and make sure the 
following month you’re quicker than the other X number of people who want 
to attend.

Here's the economics of it, as Cameron explained earlier:

Limiting the tickets _discourages_ some from coming, and that's a good
thing given the space, drinks and food are limited.

Make more tickets available, more drinks and food will be needed.
Nothing can be done about the space though. Meaning: it'll become
uncomfortable for everyone.

If people start ignoring that, checking for a ticket at the door will
become necessary, because it'll ruin it for everyone involved if the
place gets overcrowded.

Ah, so, from the responses to previous "I didn't get a ticket, can I come?"
emails, I didn't see this side of things.

Thanks a lot for explaining. I can see it does make more sense now.

Re: [sydjs] Tickets

From:
Lachlan Hardy
Date:

Hi folks!


TL;DR: We need the limits, please obey them. Be nice and considerate of our
organiser, volunteers and sponsor. Also, open source and community means
you can fix things you don't like. Just talk to us about it.


Here's the longer version:

Any venue we choose will have a maximum capacity. That capacity will
reflect an appropriate (and legally required) constraint under fire safety
regulations. Breaches of that capacity are the kinds of things that get
public venues (like bars or pubs) shut down or, in the worst case, people
dead due to aforementioned fire.

As a community, we are incredibly lucky to not have to deal with public
venues, but instead avail ourselves of the generosity of a sponsor.
Atlassian's new digs allow us to offer a significantly larger capacity than
previously. So that's already an improvement from a 6 months/a year ago.

The number of tickets Craig makes available on Tixi each month reflect the
maximum capacity of the room. And, as Adam said, those numbers also assist
Atlassian in supplying appropriate amounts of pizza and booze every month.

I hope this outlines the importance of respecting the limited number of
tickets.

Obviously, every month some people will not be able to make it for various
reasons. This can leave a small amount of leeway, but it is not to be
relied upon. The last thing we need is a nodecopter going up in flames and
wiping out a significant percentage of Sydney's JavaScript lovers due to
our communal inability to follow some simple guidelines.


All that having been said, I wish to point out a few things:

1) Craig (assisted by a number of volunteers, from Atlassian and elsewhere)
works his ass off every month to ensure that we all have a great time with
great talks and whilst I encourage you to raise issues and work to improve
anything you can, complaints without solutions aren't likely to make him
feel good.

2) Atlassian do an incredible amount to support SydJS. It's not my place to
say how much our little fun night out costs them every month, but I
strongly suggest you pull up a console and do a quick bit of maths to gain
a sense of perspective.

3) Tatham provides us a great deal of pre-emptive support for Tixi. Sure,
it's his site and his business, but the fact he's answering questions and
providing solutions on our own mailing list (while providing the service to
us for free) indicates to me his commitment and interest in our community.


Lastly, this email may come across as a bit of a shutdown. Especially since
I'm the closest thing we have to an admin on this list. I hope those who
think that can see past it a bit and see that I'm attempting to add more
detail and portray circumstances people seem to have missed.

Despite all of the above, there are some things you can do to improve those
circumstances:

1) if you have, or know of, a bigger venue, please approach Craig or
myself. We feel a strong loyalty to Atlassian for their support of SydJS
for two-something years now, but any option will be explored for the
benefit to the community.

2) Please follow the guidelines Tatham listed above and cancel your
attendance from your calendar if you cannot attend. This *will* free up
tickets for others in the community.

3) If you think we need our own ticketing system that works the way you
think it should work, all our site code is open source and available at
https://github.com/sydjs/sydjs. You're welcome to knock something up and
submit a pull request. Email me at Lachlan@lachstock.com.au for commit and
deploy rights.



Much love,

I'll see (some of) you tonight!

Lachlan

Orgs could actually write a simple app for users to register like "going 
to attend" and then ask folks to actually check in when they're in the 
building.

In couple of iterations they will have the data on the percentage of drop 
offs and have better idea on how many people going to be there.

Also, i'd try to switch on/off the pizza option and see if it correlates :)

Just as a thing, I have never had a problem getting a ticket when I need

Hey Michael,

Thanks! Really nice of you, appreciate that.

But it turned out I can show up without a ticket. Michael McGlynn said

Thanks,
Nikolay
